Beastie Boys – She’s On It (Soundtrack From The Video) (Europe 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on June 19th, 2017

BURNING HE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

“She’s on It” is a song by American hip-hop group the Beastie Boys. The group’s third single, it was released on the soundtrack to the 1985 film Krush Groove.

Despite failing to attract commercial success at the time of its release in 1985, a re-release in 1987 was much more successful, becoming a top 10 hit on the UK Singles Chart, and reaching the top 50 in two other European countries.

The song’s video was one of the band’s first music videos. The boys are trying to win the heart of a beautiful woman on the beach, but their efforts are foiled by stampeding female fans. Not even the assistance of a mentor (played by producer Rick Rubin) can help them. Their attempts range from using Spanish Fly to flying over her in a helicopter and a net, and even their attempt to blow her up fails.

It is not listed on the sleeve or labels however “She’s On It” is a longer mix than the 3:32 album version.

    I got a jolt seeing this on your page today Paul!! Gosh, The Beastie Boys!!! I remember them when they had that cult record, “Cookie Puss”, sort of a parody of all the scratch records back at the time and, “Beastie Revolution” an almost send-up of Musical Youth. At that time, I never took those Boys seriously. I really thought they were spoofing hip hop and street culture. WELL, that’s until I heard they teamed up with Rick Rubin for their “Rock Hard” a massively bombastic tune that could demolish a high-rise on maximum volume!! Too bad the beat was borrowed from AC/DC’s “Back In Black” and the 12-inch was later recalled. I also loved the crazy, “Party’s Gettin’ Rough” on the record with edits by the Latin Rascals!! Ah, too bad, as to this day, these songs are my favorite Beastie Boys record. Well, still, I loved “She’s On It” and I’m so enthused that you’ve given us the version from the video. This is such a gift. You really please EVERYONE Paul with your choices. Not just the New Wavers in the group, but all of us who have wild eclectic tastes. Thanks so much for doing this one.

    Very Much Appreciated!!

    That’s why we love you so much Paul. You always surprise and delight us. I’m not a really big fan of Hip Hop either, but the Beasties were different. Very alternative in their own way. And with all the talk of appropriation these days, the Boys were different. They did their own rebellious, punk-rock thing. They really left quite the legacy.

    Enjoying this post!!!

    Great choice Paul. I bought the 1987 release on 7″ at the time, and dug it out last year to play the excellent b-side Slow and Low, for a short DJ set. 🙂

    I watched a long-but-worth-it Zane Lowe interview with Rick Rubin recently and he just seems like the nicest most sorted guy ever. It’s all about the music, just making the greatest record possible no matter who the artist.

    Check out this short clip with him about the origins of Def Jam too, cool history lesson:

    Hi Paul,

    It seems there’s an error at the end of “Hold It, Now Hit It”: there’s a second of silence around 3:24 (after “Yo Leroy!”) and then the previous part starts again from the “Hit it!”); to me it seems there was a needle jump or something like that. Is it like that on the record, i.e. a mistake during production of the vinyl, or is it a ripping error? (It isn’t like that on the album etc.)

    (The track no. in the metadata is also incorrect as “102” instead of “02”.)
